Request In-Class Class Visits and Workshops

Each Semester, the SSTC performs class visits and/or workshops for students: these can be requested by faculty or required depending on the particular course. 

Class visits are pre-scheduled brief 5-15 minute visits to your class to inform students about our free support services.  For online courses, faculty may include a link to the SSTC website; please request your students to view our short SSTC welcome video posted.

Workshops, which can last up to an hour, provide an overview of SSTC services and teach critical academic success and college success skills to your students:

  • Study Skills/Note Taking
  • Test Taking Strategies/Anxiety
  • Stress Management
  • Time Management 
  • Critical Reading Skills
  • Writing Essays
  • Proofreading/Grammar
  • APA & Preventing Plagiarism
  • MLA & Preventing Plagiarism

We help students identify and begin using the most helpful and critical academic tools for their success. If you would like a workshop on a topic not listed here, please contact us at sstc@hgtc.edu and we'll see if we can add that topic to our workshop offerings.

Visits and workshops may be scheduled to take place in your classroom, Conway TECH Central, and/or through a tour within the SSTC. Please contact us at sstc@hgtc.edu to schedule today!

Recommend Academic Coaches for Us!

The SSTC holds the highest regard for faculty and their mission in the classroom. We trust that faculty understand their students' career endeavors, strengths, weaknesses, and capacity to tutor others academically. 

The SSTC encourages and depends on faculty to make academic tutor recommendations to provide our centers with capable and knowledgeable personnel. Faculty are welcome to make recommendations at any point in time during the academic year; we strive to have the centers fully staffed with academic tutor by the second week of the semester when tutoring officially begins.

We employ work-study and non-work study students who meet our needs as qualified academic tutors. Please keep in mind that the SSTC hires students based on available funding and to meet student demand. Email your academic tutor recommendations to sstc@hgtc.edu with Academic Coach Recommendation in the subject line. Please include the student's name, H number, phone number, and course subject(s)/number(s) that he/she is available to coach. We also ask that the student have completed the course entirely, as well as, maintain a B or better in any course he/she is to coach. A short interview with SSTC staff is required.
